  • Excerpt: 2K Sports has reigned as champions of the virtual ice ever since Electronic Arts’ NHL franchise dropped the puck, so to speak, back in 2003. With NHL 07, however, EA opened a lot of people’s eyes, including yours truly, with the introduction of its innovative Skill Stick control system.

  • Summary: It is always interesting when the young up-and-comer manages to pass by the old standard, and that is exactly what happened with the NHL games this year. EA came out swinging with new controls and a focus on simulation in 07 that they greatly improved in 08, so 2K tried to make some big changes of...

  • Conclusion: This is a game for the diehards who crave depth and options. The unintuitive menus and poor controls will turn off most casual gamers.

NHL 2K8 (Xbox 360) Review

  • Excerpt: 2K’s answer, in part, was to implement a new control system of their own. Dubbed ProStick, the new system is identical to EA’s Skill Stick in theory, being that the left analog stick acts as your skates while the right analog stick acts as your hockey stick.
